New Delhi. IPL 2023 i.e. the 16th season of the Indian Premier League is going to end today. An interesting final is expected at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans are face to face in this match. While CSK has won the IPL title 4 times, Titans is the defending champion of the T20 league. That is, no team is less than the other. Two matches have been played between the two teams in the current season and both have won one match each. Means here also the record is equal. But still MS Dhoni’s team CSK will have to be careful with Shubman Gill. He has hit 3 centuries so far. But Mahi has Rahul Dravid’s disciple i.e. Rituraj Gaikwad. His record was excellent against the Titans. They can sail the boat of the team.
If we look at the performance of 23-year-old Shubman Gill in IPL 2023, he has so far scored 851 runs in 16 innings of 16 matches at an average of 61 and faced 544 balls. Has scored 3 centuries and 4 half-centuries. That is, he has played innings of more than 50 runs 7 times. The strike rate is 156. During this, he has hit 78 fours and 33 sixes. This can give an idea of his aggressive game. He also has the Orange Cap. He is eyeing to score 900 runs in one season of T20 league after Virat Kohli. Kohli did this in 2016. Gill has to make only 49 more runs to reach here.
Rituraj Gaikwad is also not far behind
Rituraj Gaikwad is also not far behind Shubman Gill in terms of performance. So far in IPL 2023, he has scored 564 runs in 14 innings of 15 matches at an average of 43. The strike rate is 146. Has also scored 4 half-centuries. 92 runs is the best performance. He has been associated with Chennai Super Kings for a long time and was also a part of the title winning team in 2021. In such a situation, once again they would like to shine the bat in the final.
